This collection includes one set of 5 poems, printed with a red border and black background, for display purposes, and one set of the same 5 poems, printed on white without the black background, making them more suitable and cost effective for printing out class copies. These poems are not specific to Canada and would be suitable for Veterans Day in the U.S. or in other countries as well.
I am humbled by the feedback I have received on how teachers have been able to use these poems effectively in their classrooms and for Remembrance Day or Veterans Day ceremonies at their schools. It is, to me, such an important topic for children to recognize and be educated on, and I am grateful that many have found value in sharing my work with students.
Please feel free to use these poems to start discussions on the topic of Remembrance Day or Veterans Day in your classrooms, to stimulate response journal writing, to provide inspiration for art work etc. for your students. I have included some suggested learning activities and ways to present the poems at a Remembrance Day ceremony. I only ask that when presenting publicly, please credit me with my work.
Each of these poems are available individually at my store, located at the link on the last page of this product.
